Slow Sessions


Comhaltas Winnipeg holds “slow” sessions for beginner to intermediate players. These non-audience sessions are for those individuals who are learning to play an instrument in the Irish tradition, such as: Fiddle, mandolin, Bohdran, flute, tin whistle, concertina, Harp etc.

Traditional Irish music will be played at a slightly slower pace. Our more experienced Comhaltas members are encouraged to come and play too so that others may learn.

When: Alternate Tuesdays – next session is April 21
Where: Traicy’s house – email Traicy at traicyr(at)
Time: 7pm to 9pm

Cost: A $2 donation covers refreshments
